After ANTHONY VAN DYCK (1599-1641)

Portrait Cornelis van der Geest 1577-1638 (Antwerp Belgium )

This fine portrait of Cornelis van der Geest has been skilfully mastered in oils by a very competent hand reproducing the master painting on an off white linen material similar to canvas but lighter in weight and after the original by Van Dyck, being executed in the late 19th Century and is set within a rosewood veneered c1870 frame with later antique style slip.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Sir Anthony van Dyck (Dutch born 22 March 1599 – 9 December 1641) was a Flemish Baroque artist who became the leading court painter in England, after enjoying great success in Italy and Flanders.

Antoon van Dyck (his Flemish name) was born to prosperous parents in Antwerp.
He was baptised on 23 March 1599 (as Anthonio).

His talent was evident very early, and he was studying painting with Hendrick van Balen by 1609, and became an independent painter around 1615, setting up a workshop with his even younger friend Jan Brueghel the Younger.By the age of fifteen he was already a highly accomplished artist, as his Self-portrait, 1613–14, shows.He was admitted to the Antwerp painters' Guild of Saint Luke as a free master by February 1618.Within a few years he was to be the chief assistant to the dominant master of Antwerp, and the whole of Northern Europe, Peter Paul Rubens, who made much use of sub-contracted artists as well as his own large workshop. His influence on the young artist was immense Rubens referred to the nineteen-year-old van Dyck as "the best of my pupils".

He is most famous for his portraits of Charles I of England and his family and court, painted with a relaxed elegance that was to be the dominant influence on English portrait-painting for the next 150 years.

He also painted biblical and mythological subjects, displayed outstanding facility as a draughtsman, and was an important innovator in watercolour and etching. The Van Dyke beard is named after him.

ABOUT THE SITTER
Cornelis van der Geest (1575 – 10 March 1638) was a spice merchant from Antwerp, who used his wealth to support the Antwerp artists and to establish his art collection. He was also the dean of the haberdashers guild.

Cornelis Van Der Geest is best known today for his art collection.
He was portrayed repeatedly by Anthony van Dyck, while Willem van Haecht, who he had hired as curator, painted his "constcammer" several times, including a view of the visit of Albert VII, Archduke of Austria and Isabella Clara Eugenia to his art collection.

He owned two paintings by Quentin Matsys, one of which, a Madonna, can be seen in the Van Haecht painting. Other works included in that view are Women at her toilet by Jan van Eyck, a still life by Frans Snyders, Ceres Mocked by Adam Elsheimer, Danaë by Van Haecht, Battle of the Amazons and a portrait by Peter Paul Rubens, Peasant Company with Woman making Pancakes by Pieter Aertsen, Apelles by Jan Wierix and a hunting scene by Jan Wildens. The painting also shows some of Van der Geest's sculptures, with copies of the Venus de' Medici, the Farnese Hercules, and the Apollo Belvedere.
